Drew Brees - GOAT of the modern era

CYST: Week 11

Analysis Opinion Picks
Website | + posts

I was born a poor black child. I remember the days, sittin' on the porch with my family, singin' and dancin' down in Mississippi where I learned the three rules of life: Lord loves a workin' man; don't trust whitey; see a doctor and get rid of it.

Over the past few CYST articles, I had been stroking Dan’s ego (among other things) so that he would quit crying.  Well, I don’t care about that now.  To tell the truth, I didn’t really care about it then, but I just needed to fill some space in the article.  I still need to fill space, but I have something important that we all need to talk about, honestly, so that we can all understand the truth.  Of course, I’m talking about who is truly the GOAT when it comes to NFL QB’s.

Our beloved SDL went on a semi-lucid rant earlier this week on this very topic (as all Packer fans like to do, from time to time), so I felt it was time we put this topic to bed, once and for all, by coming to a consensus on who the GOAT is.  Above, you see an image of Drew Brees, the QB of the New Orleans Saints; a team that is the cause of Shooter’s facial tick and a team that Donny is quick to remind us of their suckitude.  Brees has put up some incredible numbers over the years, specifically the years he’s spent in New Orleans with Sean Payton.  Many fans of other teams are quick to dismiss those numbers by calling them, ‘volume stats’.  When I first heard someone say this, I thought to myself, “WTF are they talking about?  Don’t you want your QB to put up big numbers?”  As time went by, these fans of other teams have convinced me that it is better for a QB to put up smaller numbers and thus I’ve come to realize that Drew Brees is not the GOAT.

Actually, I’ve never thought of Brees as the GOAT because I’m not some bias fan bitch boi who will turn on a player once said player goes to another team.  The GOAT is, and has always been, Joe Montana.  That’s right, fuck Aaron Rodgers, his osteoporosis riddled shoulder and the bitches that tongue his butt hole (until he leaves Green Bay that is).  Joe was a better college QB, a better professional QB, better looking and, he fucking played with the real Rudy Ruettiger in college.  The only thing Rodgers might be better at than Montana is broadcast announcing because Joe sucked at that.

There, now that it is written on the Interwebs and can no longer be disputed, there is no need for further discussion, let’s get on with the CYST portion of this article.  It was a really light week; two points awarded, that’s it.  Donny and Glove are the only two to actually get points; 1 each.  Didn’t do much for Donny, but it did help Glove move into a second place tie with Jammin while Reggie and Dan (fuck him) still sit on top together.  The beauty of this is, by mentioning the names of the Packer fan posters, they’re going to struggle with the legitimacy of this article.  I’m hoping one of two of them stroke out in the process.  Not MKE though, because he’s too good to make picks with us heathens.  To the results…

The above only represents games that involved the NFCN or NFCS.  If you wish, the leader board for those who weren’t too “busy” to pick all the games is here.  I’ve also stopped posting all of you who have yet to get a point in CYST.  I know you claim that it is because you’re not picking the games, but we all know that it is because you suck.




Wondering why some of the names have a different background color?  Well, that’s because a feature was added to the CYST site.  If you click on My Account on the top right of the CYST site (when you’re logged in), you will see my todo list for that page, but also a color picker.  If you choose a color there (and click update), that color will be the background on the site in tables where your name appears.

No NFCS or NFCN game tonight, but Tennessee will be in Pittsburgh for what promises to be a very exciting game.  I’m lying; it’s probably going to suck.  Whether you believe me or not, go make your picks.  How do you get to the site so that you can pick games?  Well, that’s a good question.  If only there was a uniform resource locator in the form of a hyperlink.
